  • Is C&RL Ready for a Data Sharing Policy'

    • Authors: Minglu Wang, Adrian K. Ho, Kristen Totleben
      First page: 308
      Abstract: In the summer of 2020, C&RL received a request from the ACRL Board of Directors to establish a registered report submission track as a major step to ensure C&RL’s high standards of rigorous methods. The request letter was signed by a group of ACRL members, led by Amy Riegelman, who later published an editorial on this topic (Amy Riegelman, 2021), calling C&RL to be more proactive in supporting open research practices. In order to increase C&RL’s rigor in supporting and implementing open research practices, it was recognized that both access to research data and transparency of research methods are necessary. From this line of thought, the C&RL Editorial Board, former Editor Wendi Arant Kaspar and Editor Kristen Totleben, have been engaged in an ongoing conversation on the possibility and the journal’s capacity to implement a data sharing policy. For the past three years, Editorial Board member Minglu Wang has been researching academic journals’ data sharing policies and reaching out to journal editors and editorial board members for consultation. Her efforts culminated in fall 2022 when she, Totleben, and Editorial Board member Adrian Ho conducted a survey (see Appendix) requesting input from colleagues in academic libraries regarding their perceptions of a data sharing policy and what types of data management support they would need or recommend.

  • Carrots and Sticks: A Qualitative Study of Library Responses to the UK’s
           Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 Open Access Policy

    • Authors: Dan DeSanto
      First page: 315
      Abstract: This study examines how academic libraries in the UK responded to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 open access policy. Thirteen information professionals at twelve institutions across the UK took part in semi-structured interviews. Findings from the interviews reveal how libraries created and deployed new infrastructures, workflows, and staffing as well as the methods through which universities communicated the policy’s requirements. The study describes respondents’ experiences of the changes brought about by REF 2021 as well as their thoughts on how the REF 2021 open access policy will affect future REF assessments. Results provide insight for libraries responding to US initiatives such as the August 2022 White House Office of Science and Technology Policy memo directing the open publishing of federally funded research.

  • Assessing Diversity in Special Collections and Archives

    • Authors: Sarah R. Jones, Emily Lapworth, Tammi Kim
      First page: 335
      Abstract: In 2020, UNLV Special Collections and Archives conducted an internal audit of collections, strategic plans, and programming in order to assess how well it is meeting strategic goals of being more inclusive and increasing diversity and representation. In a data-driven institution, how can assessment be used to advocate for resources focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion' In conducting this analysis, UNLV hoped to answer the following query: how is progress measured if the goal is to preserve stories outside the traditional narrative (white, male, cisgender, heteronormative, etc.)' This article discusses strategies for assessing diversity in special collections and archives.

  • OA and the Academy: Evaluating an OA Fund with Authors’ Input

    • Authors: Gail McMillan, Leslie O’Brien, Edward F. Lener
      First page: 357
      Abstract: The University Libraries at Virginia Tech established an Open Access Subvention Fund (OASF) in August 2012. Although it began as a two-year pilot project, the Fund has continued to the present. Anyone at Virginia Tech is eligible to apply for funding to offset the cost of an article processing charge to publish in an open access journal. To learn more about user perceptions of the OASF and open access in general, we surveyed everyone who had requested support. The survey, conducted during the fall of 2019, provided a means to gauge the needs of our users, seek feedback on the request and award process, and gather input on the fund guidelines. In this article, we review our findings in the hope that the lessons learned will be useful to other libraries in assessing similar open access subvention funds.

  • The Impact of Decorative Images on Student Performance: A Two-Year Study
           of Online Library Modules

    • Authors: Alexander Deeke, Naomi Binnie
      First page: 374
      Abstract: During a two-year period, over 1,900 undergraduate students completed a version of an online asynchronous library module either with or without decorative images. Two instruction librarians compared quiz scores and affective feedback from both versions to determine the impact decorative images had on student performance and analyzed the results through the lenses of multimedia and user experience studies. The study finds that decorative images have little impact on student performance and expounds on how these findings impact design concerns of future online library modules.

  • Complex and Varied: Factors Related to the Research Productivity of
           Academic Librarians in the United States

    • Authors: Kristin Hoffmann, Selinda Adelle Berg, Kristine R. Brancolini, Marie R. Kennedy
      First page: 392
      Abstract: Academic librarians face multiple barriers in conducting the research that is expected in their work, yet they still manage to successfully complete it. This study aimed to identify the factors that contribute to their success. Through an online survey sent via email to a random sample of academic librarians in the United States, we gathered and analyzed quantitative data about education and experience, demographics, success factor statements, and research productivity to determine which factors are related to increased research output. We found that three categories of factors—Individual Attributes, Peers and Community, and Institutional Structures and Supports—contribute positively to overall research output. We identified several elements that academic librarians may want to pursue to increase research productivity, with Peers and Community identified as a category for exploration. Overall, we found that academic librarians are highly motivated to conduct research, yet the factors leading to their success are complex and varied.

  • How Multilingual Is Area Studies' Citation Patterns of German Studies
           Scholars at American Institutions

    • Authors: Tara Murray Grove
      First page: 428
      Abstract: Academic libraries invest significant resources for developing collections of foreign-language materials, so it is important for librarians to understand how scholars use these materials. This study uses citation analysis to investigate how frequently scholars in the United States cite sources in languages other than English, taking German Studies as an example where one would expect to find multilingual scholarship. The results indicate that American scholars do incorporate foreign-language sources into their scholarly outputs, but the rate varies significantly between disciplines. Area studies collections should be developed to support discovery and use of diverse materials, including those in languages other than English.

  • Toward a Framework for Information Creativity

    • Authors: Mark Dahlquist
      First page: 441
      Abstract: Recognizing the importance of information literacy in defining the primary focus of library instruction, this paper suggests the potential utility of a complementary principle of information creativity. Employers and educators now increasingly stress creativity’s value and teachability; this paper turns to the work of John Dewey to suggest that the traditional distinction between creativity and literacy education is not only unavoidable but also potentially productive. This paper offers some initial suggestions as to what a framework for information creativity might entail, and proposes that an emphasis on information creativity could both highlight the familiar association between libraries and creativity and inspire a theory and practice of creativity that strengthens traditions of democratic social progress.

    • Authors: Jeffrey Garrett
      First page: 464
      Abstract: Librarians tend to look askance at commentators on their work and profession from outside the guild. Henry Petroski, an engineer, wrote Book on the Bookshelf (1999), looking at the practical construction principles of bookshelves through history, and was never taken seriously by librarians—perhaps also in light of his (joking') recommendations to arrange books on bookshelves by the author’s first name, or by the first letter of the second-to-last word of the title. Umberto Eco’s Name of the Rose (1981) was nothing if not a roman à clef about the perfidy of librarians hoarding secrets—which of course we know we never do. A final example, the pharaonic undertaking by two other outsiders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, to create a universal digital library, was, as Deanna Marcum and Roger C. Schonfeld argue in Along Came Google: A History of Library Digitization, brought down largely through the opposition of major library organizations, ALA, ARL, and ACRL.

  • Beyond the Book: Unique and Rare Primary Sources for East Asian Studies
           Collected in North America. Jidong Yang, ed. New York: Columbia University
           Press, 2022. 368 pp. Hardcover, $60, (ISBN 9780924304989).

    • Authors: Mitsu Nakamura
      First page: 466
      Abstract: If information specialists are looking for a book about the unique collections of significant East Asian Libraries in North America, I heartily recommend Beyond the Book.A compilation of presentations from a 2015 conference at Stanford University organized by Dr. Jidong Yang, each updated chapter begins with a brief history of the contributor’s East Asian library and introduces some of their signature collections that go “beyond the book”: letters, maps, pictures, films, sound recordings, etc. All of the contributing librarians and scholars are native or near-native language speakers in their respective fields, and they justifiably celebrate their worthy achievements. They have worked diligently to provide and improve access to their communities in response to donors’ requests for each collection. Presented as a whole, readers can easily compare each individual effort and understand the complexities associated with specialized collections that must be made accessible to the public. These efforts have continued while the authors carefully balance several conflicting duties simultaneously, including day-to-day operations as well as deadlines for long-time goals.

      Abstract: Reference and Access for Archives and Manuscripts by Cheryl Oestreicher is a comprehensive guide for archives and special collections workers published by the Society of American Archivists as part of the Archival Fundamentals Series III. The information is presented in a straightforward manner with the aim of describing and contextualizing the skills, policies, practices, and specific tasks of reference and access within the much-changed contemporary archival services landscape. Oestreicher is a new voice in the Fundamentals series on the topic of reference and access. Mary Jo Pugh admirably authored the previous iterations dating back to the first series in the 1990s up until the most recent 2005 edition.

      Abstract: Vulgar Genres is a fascinating book analyzing what author Steven Ruszczycky calls writing “across the literary-pornographic divide.” His book consists of close readings of both commercial literary fiction by gay male authors depicting homosexual identity and encounters, and by authors and editors of what he calls “vulgar genres” that are more explicitly pornographic. Any library or archive worker interested in collection development of queer literature, LGBTQ special collections and archives, or queer studies more broadly, will read it with great interest.

      Abstract: In an all-encompassing, digitally connected world, librarians are at the forefront of protecting patrons’ digital privacy. This is evident in programs like the Library Freedom Project, a group that teaches librarians about privacy issues; the annual New York City Privacy Week, a joint program between the metropolitan area’s public libraries that focuses on digital privacy and security; and recent privacy-oriented books such as law librarian Sarah Lamdan’s Data Cartels. Privacy is a tenet of librarianship, as library users should have the ability to read and research without intrusive surveillance from the state and, in modern times, big tech. However, librarians may find it difficult to know where to start when it comes to privacy initiatives and policies.
